I took my therapy dog to my vet after he'd been acting strande all weekend. On mon morning she gave him a pain shot and told me to give him 3 pills when I got home. He had been shanking and unsteady in his left front leg. I gave him the prednisone , muscle
relaxer and pain pill after arriving home. He had a terrible seizure. Within 15 minutes. Two days before I had him at at hospice private home and let him run around saying hello to all the hospice patients. 8 days before I had an open house party and I didn't know everyone who came into my house . My beautiful golden as very sick by Tuesday. I took him to the emergency hospital at the advice of my vet They mentioned brain
tumor . They took blood test. Good x rays good. But they anted to do a cat scan and I didn't think he would survive anesthesia. . So I declined. . They kept him there on iv fluids and prednisone and an anti-inflammatory of the brain. He improve for a day. And then when I went to pick him up his hind legs
were paralyzed and he was walking
on the back of his feet the upper part of his feet. . I took him back the next day and they put him on more steroids and anti-inflammatories for the brain. He got better while he was on the IV fluids. Then I had to board him for a couple of days while I went out of town and when I came back he was lethargic and couldn't walk on the final leg is fine legs were paralyzed. I asked the emergency vet if I should put them down and she said that I should gon for alternative treatment. I went to another vet and the vet said he had a fractured disc and that there was really no choice other than to put thim down have have extensive surgery possibly or chemotherapy or radiation if he had a brain tumor but sh thought it as a spine problem three vets and they gave me thre different diagnosis. After I put him down I started reading about bromaddiolone . I'm think maybe they missed that and he couldn't have been treated quickly. But it was too late. On August 8th after one week seeing 3 vets and 6200.00 spent I had to put him down. I hoping the vets know the info about this new rat poison. But they never mentioned it. He had almost all the symptoms. He gone and I'm utterly heartbroken and feeling guilty that I didn't think of suggesting poison as a possibility. But I gues know bromaddiolone poison when they see it.
